Explorers' Emporium comes from a long journey of exploration and determination. It has its start back in 1989 as an animal rescue and care organization. Through its popularity that program evolved into a children's museum (1995-2004). The museum focused on science, nature and ecology. Tens of thousands of visitors enjoyed a wonderful hands-on educational program teaming with live animals, dinosaur bones, science experiments, workshops and more! During this period, countless computers were donated to schools and some truly wonderful relationships were built with various groups as well as local Native American organizations. In 2004 that program became Woodland Ways. Woodland Ways grew and in 2015 it expanded into new markets. Investing in Explorers' Emporium, Inc. gave Woodland Ways a creative release for even greater community efforts. We sincerely appreciate your visits to Explorers' Emporium. Please take advantage of our many workshops, gaming events, and educational programs. We are all sincerely thankful for all the support we have received over the years.
